Mom and Dad's visit

Mom and Dad came out for a visit and we had a great time! It flew by much to our dismay... and we know that it really did because Dad even said it did:) Anyway I am so grateful for such wonderful parents and my wonderful sister who was gracious enough to host all of us, even though I only live 20 minutes away to save on gas! Thanks Ame! Sadly because my brain is dead most of the week is a blur:) But I know we went to see Kung Fu panda which I actually got to watch as Dad was sweet enough to come to retrieve my whining kiddo. Leland did pretty well, but alas at this age they just aren't that interested in sitting in front of a movie. I laughed out loud most of the time... but my favorite lines are by far "my tenders" and "stop I'm going to pee" very funny in context believe me:D needless to say it is a movie I will own for me, I mean Leland! We did Gatti Town which is always fun and who doesn't like an all you can eat buffet especially when Dad takes the kids all except the two little ones into the arcade and we get to sit and eat Cinnamon bread with a cream cheesy icing.

We also went bowling on Labor day which was a nice change of pace and how fun it was to watch Eli get so excited for his turn. Leland enjoyed his grandma's singing and I enjoyed watching everything!
The Rodeo was a blast we went to the Stockyards in Fort Worth, which even people who were raised here have no idea that they have a rodeo on the weekends, because I told some of my friends we were going to a rodeo and the only one they could think of would be in Mesquite. I am sure that one is good but this one was lots of fun as well. As mentioned in an earlier post I fell at this rodeo. here is the story for those of you who have been waiting for it:) One of the muscles in my eye is slow to act so in the dark and when I do quick changes in what I am looking at (like reading and all the sudden looking up) my vision gets a little blurry, now I do have glasses to correct this problem but I never wear them. I know what a waste of money. I never wear them because up until yesterday I didn't know where they were! Anywho, I was going to meet dad and help him bring the stroller up that had my sleeping baby in it (that dad had just walked all over to get to him to finally go to sleep) and totally miscalculated the steps, I looked down in the dark, thinking okay only one more... well there were two and I went down pretty hard. Poor dad was sure I had sprained my ankle and kept asking me if it was alright, although I was laughing so hard I had a hard time reassuring him I was ok. Thankfully from our group it was only Dad that witnessed otherwise I may never live it down. But I got a swollen wrist from it, and a scratched up leg. The wrist is fine now and the cuts are healing and I am still giggling and hoping that it was graceful! Anywho I am waiting for some pictures from Amy's camera but I will post what i have :) Thanks so much mom and dad for an awesome week! You two are the best!
